Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Brooks & Dunn

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

Borderline album at
Brooks & Dunn's, "Boot Scootin' Boogie"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Cadillac flap jack
Baby meet me outback
We're gonna boogie.
The Real Lyrics:
Cadillac blackjack
Baby meet me outback
Wwe're gonna boogie.
The Story: My friend and I were talking one day about how we always misunderstand lyrics. Her mom chimed in and told me how my friend, as a little girl, would be singing this song and they realized what she was saying. (She was little!!) But nonetheless, it was funny and kinda reassuring that I am not the only who can't understand some of what comes outta these artists mouth! - Submitted by: ThePeople'sApplePolisher

We sew pillows, play our guitars loud
The Real Lyrics:

The Story: One who plays a fiddle very well is said to "saw on" it. - Submitted by: Donna
